with Kimberly Beyer-Nelson
The symptoms of depression affect millions of persons across the globe.
But not all kinds of depression are the same. Some people get teary, some irritable, some can’t sleep, some sleep too much, some eat everything in sight, others can’t face food, some withdraw, some lash out, some just worry.
has been a certified yoga therapist, spiritual director and Reiki Master and has been teaching Yoga for Emotional Balance for years in both hospital and community settings
With theological training, a master’s degree in comparative religion and a graduate certificate in holistic healthcare, she has had a centering prayer practice for over 20 years and delights in leading contemplative retreats.
In 2002 she published “A Little Book of Wholeness and Prayer.” She is also a poet, essayist, and speculative fiction writer.
In the yoga tradition, the way to work with depression varies, depending on how depression manifests in the individual.
This workshop will explore the many faces of depression, how specific postures, meditation and breath-work can ease specific depressive symptoms, and how a study of doshic and koshic yoga philosophy can contribute to understanding this disease process.
Students will go home with a short practice for each doshic type.
Please bring your mat and a notebook, and dress for movement as well as stillness.
